Serve this dish with Basmati Cilantro Lime rice, topped with lime zest and cilantro. The rice will absorb the sauce. And a side of easy-to-prepare green beans.
Broiled Tilapia Coconut Curry
This dish can be ready in 15 minutes. The green beans and the rice will cook in just a couple of minutes. The sauce doesn’t really cook, it just gets warm. You don’t want it to boil. And the fish only takes about 7 minutes to broil. If you do the prep work ahead of time, you can disappear in the kitchen for 10 minutes and return with dinner on the plates.
